Got the word that everyone arrived safe and that luggage did too. Thanks for your prayers.
I didn’t sleep well last night because Max’s fever hasn’t let up and I woke him up to give him medicine. I was undecided about whether or not I should wake him from a deep sleep in the middle of the night. Is the current thinking now that you don’t necessarily have to give medicine for a fever round the clock? But my mom used to wake me up when I was sick so I went with history on this one. I remember always loving the middle-of-the-night attention from my mom.
Max’s temp was 101 (103 was his highest yesterday). I found out that fever or not, if you wake him up in the middle of the night, he’ll be chatty and initiate lots of conversations and have a hard time going back to sleep. But he’ll be in a sweet mood and tell you that you’re a great mom.
So yeah, I made the best call.
Speaking of calls – just got our first Skype call from Mike a minute ago. It was so fun -very Jetsons-y. My hair wasn’t brushed, by the way, and one of the students took a peek and said hi. Ha!
